81  Bitcoin / Mining / Would like to start a bitcoin motherboard pros and cons thread on: June 09, 2011, 09:06:45 PM
Hi all you miners.

I've been lurking here for a day or two now and think I have put together enough information to build my first rig in the coming week.
It's nice to see so many people here offering advice and helping each other out. I wouldn't have the first idea about putting together a rig if it wasn't for all the information I've got from the post's here.

The one thing I had some confusion on and one that I don't think there is a common consensus on is the suitability of motherboards
(pro's cons, reliability problems you can only be aware off after you buy it.)

I had the idea to start this after I found out from a comment in a thread on someone else's proposed rig that the motherboard they were going to buy (same as one I was going to use too) have a tendency of turning off some of your PCIE slots when others are in use.

This is the board: ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131363R

I was thinking what would be useful was if we posted details and feedback on boards you are using be it for a two, three or four card rig along with what is required to get the cards installed and running such as riser cables/ pci-e x1 adapter cables and even power on switches

I'm sure to a lot of you regular and technically minded people here this might seem like something you take for granted but I'd say I've crawled over 50 threads to learn everything I need to know about boards and which one to get.

Let me know what you think of the idea anyway or maybe it's been done already and somehow I missed it Cheesy
Also if anyone has any ideas about format/what info should be presented do tell me as after all I'm only learning and don't pretend to know it all

Am I correct in saying I can have several copies of this file but as soon as I use one all will be void?

Sorry for the newb question but the other thing I'm wondering is do you guys keep many copies of your wallet, I'm sure of the avobe is the case having several copies also makes it easier for someone to steal you coins too.
